T20 World Cup - Sunday 23rd June - James Buttler


The T20 World Cup is hotting up, James Buttler has Sunday's best bets 

Co-hosts USA have been absolutely brilliant as an associate nation but they've run out of steam a little bit in the Super Eights with two defeats already and a win for England will take them to four points. That should be enough to see them qualify for the semi-finals. 

Jos Buttler's team should take victory in Barbados despite a chance of rain around but 1/12 is way too skinny to make that appealing to me. 

My two best bets in this one, Jos Butler to be the man of the match at 11/2 with Boyle Sports. Butler wears his heart on his sleeve a little bit and he's smiling in this tournament. He knows his team are playing quite well and he knows he's contributing as well with both bat and as captain and as keeper. He was exceptional in the last match they played against South Africa.

My other bet is Adil Rashid, the leg spinner, to be the top England bowler. He's 100/30 with PaddyPower and often the associate nations, they don't mind the pace, they don't mind the seam, it's the spin that maybe befuddles them a little bit. Rashid's been brilliant, the current number one T20 international bowler in the world and he's having a very good tournament. 

The other match on Sunday, UK time anyway and unbeaten Australia should have too much for Afghanistan. 

Australian Glenn Maxwell, he's 9-1 to be the man of the match. It's a risk as he comes in down the order but he smashed his 50-over World Cup double hundred against the same opponents and he's unlikely to go through this tournament without making headlines at some stage. 

- Jos Butler, man of the match at 11/2

- Adil Rashid, top England bowler at 10/3

- Glenn Maxwell to star and be man of the match at 9/1
